‘Dark’ Theories and Burning Questions: Jonas’ Fate, the Wallpapered Room, and That Massive Back Tattoo

‘Dark’ Theories and Burning Questions:  Jonas’ Fate, the Wallpapered Room, and That Massive Back Tattoo
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the entirety of Netflix’s series “Dark.”]

Netflix’s German supernatural mystery thriller doesn’t fit neatly into any puzzle box, but it sure is addictive and intriguing. Initially built around the case of a missing boy in Winden, “Dark” quickly bursts through the confines of the small town — not by reaching beyond its borders, but beyond its time. The curious time travel element, however, is a tricky one, and two warring forces are trying to control it. Unfortunately, it seems that many young boys have been caught in the middle.

The time travel occurs in 33-year increments, which creates a curious connection with Winden’s past, present, and future. In particular, viewers have gotten to know the young, middle-aged, and older versions of the same characters that hail from a few major families. Trying to keep the various surnames, generations, and each person’s secrets straight is difficult enough, but throw in a kidnapping priest, arcane references,

Mexico’s Anima Studios Leaps into Virtual Reality (Exclusive)

Mexico’s Anima Studios Leaps into Virtual Reality (Exclusive)
Latin America’s most prominent animation house Anima Studios has made its first foray into virtual reality with “Cantinflas Presents: The Time Machine,” a seven-minute animated Vr short that plays during a ride at the Selva Magica Amusement Park in Guadalajara, Mexico. The Mexico City-based animation company developed and supervised the production of the Vr ride in collaboration with amusement park giant Ventura Entertainment. German Vr ride companies Ambient Entertainment and Vr Coaster were also partners on the project.

“As our first virtual reality project, we had the amazing opportunity to work in such a different and powerful medium and explore its many possibilities,” said Anima COO Jose C. Garcia de Letona. “It was ideal for our first venture into Vr as there’s no need for other devices aside from the special glasses provided by the ride,” said Garcia.

“Having in the short feature such an emblematic character as Cantinflas is an honor by itself,” he

‘Selfish,’ ‘Mom,’ ‘Hedgehog’ to Bow at Annecy’s Mifa TV Pitches

‘Selfish,’ ‘Mom,’ ‘Hedgehog’ to Bow at Annecy’s Mifa TV Pitches
Annecy, France — “Mom Hurries Home,” “Selfish” and “The Tales of the Hedgehog” feature among eight projects at an Annecy Mifa TV Pitches session which looks to have grown in importance and quality over recent years.

This year, 136 projects were submitted for a maximum of eight slots, said Mifa projects head Geraldine Baché, adding that among all the Mifa Pitches’ categories, the TV Special & Series has grown the most in these last few years.

“Due to the quantity of projects we receive, I can honestly confirm that quality has also much improved,” Bache added, saying that Mifa received projects from all over the world with a personal identity and a strong personality. “Most are innovative but definitely try to match market demand, which is quiet new in fact!”

Fielding different demands from broadcasters, Mifa has consciously created a session, taking place June 15, with a notable diversity in projects’ geographical origin, genre and primary target.

Review: "World Without End" (1956) Warner Archive Blu-ray Release

  • CinemaRetro
By Hank Reineke

There’s enough cross-plot evidence to suggest that some ideas woven into World Without End (Allied Artists, 1956) were based in part on H.G. Wells’ classic 1895 novel The Time Machine. Wells’ immortal tale would, of course, soon follow the less-celebrated World Without End as a lavish, big-screen Hollywood feature of 1960. Though director-writer Edward Bernds readily admitted to familiarity with Wells’ The Time Machine, he insisted his screenplay was a wholly original creation. Though the similarities between the two works cannot be discounted, Bernds refutation has merit. Certainly modern science-fiction’s fascinations with time and space travel were hardly of the abstract, and most certainly predated Wells’ own literary musings on the subject.

That said, Bernds World Without End is of its own time and primarily a stereotypical 1950s Cold War-era vehicle. It’s a call for a return to reason and détente in the decade following the game-changing horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Death Line aka Raw Meat

This early gore-horror picture has a remarkable emphasis on human values, believe it or not, with a ‘monster’ that nevertheless is a paragon of loving gentleness. Add Donald Pleasance as a surly, posh-hating police inspector, and the shock value makes the Hammer films of the early ’70s taste like weak tea.

Rescuing the Runes: The Almost-Lost Original Long Cut of Night of the Demon

— A Savant Guest Article by Wayne Schmidt

Fires, clerical errors, and lab mistakes have caused films to become unavailable in good quality, or even lost forever. Studio indifference also allows vintage films to be ignored to death, while their negatives rot in cans. So it’s great to hear a ‘lost film’ story with a happy ending.

A note from Glenn Erickson: About twenty years ago, when I worked at MGM, I had some contact with MGM’s in house Film and Video Services team, and learned how the department maintained the MGM library of film titles. My old friend Wayne Schmidt was at the time over at Sony, and busy doing much the same work for that studio’s older Columbia film library. Naturally, the first thing I asked about was the status of both studios’ Hammer film collections!

World Without End

“Thru the Time Barrier, 552 years Ahead… Roaring To the Far Reaches of Titanic Terror, Crash-Landing Into the Nightmare Future!” … and as Daffy Duck says, “And it’s good, too!” Allied Artists sends CinemaScope and Technicolor on a far-out timewarp to a place where the men are silly and the women are… very female. Hugh Marlowe stars but the picture belongs to hunky Rod Taylor and leggy Nancy Gates.

Arrow Midseason Trailer & Are The CW DC Shows Doomed To Fail? Our Readers Answer

Earlier today I posted a Supergirl pic where Kevin Smith showed a new Dc alien, and now I have an extended Arrow trailer for you. Check it out!

So here we see the return of Laurel Dinah Lance, The Black Canary, or so it seems. I think by now we all know it is actually Black Siren, which is Flash's Earth-2 version of Laurel that is actually an evil doppelganger. Flash created a Multiverse, and it has allowed us to bring back long dead characters or alternate versions of themselves, typically evil, to pop-in for an episode or two. We have already seen 6'ish Harrison Wells, which is a play on H.G. Wells name (the author of The Time Machine), and there is no telling just how many characters could be brought back. In fact, we could see Reverse-Flash die and the multiverse could have infinite versions of him and

ABC's Time After Time: How Hard Is It Being TV's Sixth Time Travel Show?
The producers of Time After Time are Wells aware that when the ABC drama makes its debut, it will be (conservatively speaking) TV’s sixth current series with a time travel element.

That, however, makes things a bit easier, says executive producer Kevin Williamson (The Following), seeing as viewers are just a bit more likely to be familiar with “time ripples,” the Butterfly Effect and such.

‘Hacksaw Ridge,’ ‘Star Trek,’ ‘Deadpool’ Lead Makeup Oscar Contenders
The Academy’s makeup and hairstyling branch is difficult to peg down. Of all the various branches, its members often seem the most uninterested in a film’s critical or box office success. Movies like “The Lone Ranger,” “Norbit,” “Click” and “The Time Machine” have scored nominations in the past, regardless of being perceived as creative failures otherwise.

Not only that, but this is a branch that can drag hidden contenders into the light. Look at movies like “The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared,” or “Il Divo,” which went on to out-of-the-blue nominations.

So it can make for an exciting race. How do things appear to be shaping up this year?

One film has stood out considerably in the field since hitting theaters over the summer: “Star Trek Beyond.” Once again featuring a variety of alien designs, it would be a bit of a surprise if it fell off,

Doc NYC 2016: Ten Films To Keep An Eye On From This Year’s Doc NYC Lineup

Now in its seventh year, the New York City-based and documentary-focused film festival aptly titled Doc NYC has become a mainstay on the documentary festival circuit. Along with series like Hot Docs and the more avant-garde-heavy True/False, Doc NYC is slowly but surely becoming one of the must-attend festivals for cinephiles who have an affinity for the non-fiction side of cinema.

And yet, it’s still a festival on the come up. With only six previous iterations in its history, Doc NYC is one of the hundreds, if not thousands, of festivals or film series that make up a calendar year in New York and the film world in general. Marking this year’s event with 110 features (roughly 44% of which are directed or co-directed by women, I will add) including 18 world premieres and 19 Us premieres and even a small repertory sidebar, this is set to be the biggest and arguably best lineup yet.
